I feel bad giving only four stars... The trail is great. I would rate it “moderate to hard” due to rather steep and poorly paved parts of the trail. I would recommend not to go up the mountain after the first bridge (that offers a spectacular view, btw), but continue along the river. It was too ambitious for us to complete all 8 km with 8-year old on a hot August day. We have made the first 5.3 km from Capileira to Pampaneira, but had to cup the hike short and take a bus back to Capileira. I am definitely coming back one day to complete the whole trail.
